RQYS now offers the option to pay $350.00/$615.00 on top of an RQYS Sailing Membership, to receive 10 ($350.00, lasts 6 months) or 20 ($615.00, lasts 12 months) 3-hour sails on our boats (Monohull Elliott 6s or Trimaran Pulse 600s). In these 3-hour sails, you will be taught to sail by very experienced and qualified instructors, awarded the Start Skippering Certification, and then you will be able to use the rest of your 3-hour sails, to privately use the boats without an instructor. You may only take 5 sails to be deemed competent to Skipper, meaning you are left with quite a few 3-hour sails to take the boat on your own with your own friends and family. We will email you and advise what lessons are available to book into when you are learning. When you are certified and competent, you will need to contact us to organise when you can privately use the boats.
This is the perfect option for people who want to learn to sail and then privately use boats without the supervision of Instructors, or competent sailors who do not own a boat. It is also extremely flexible and incredible value.
If you think you’d prefer to commit to a course (more structure and regular attendance requirements), our Dinghy and Keelboat courses are the perfect option for you.
